Project by: Keri Petersen
Location: Seattle, Washington

Outdoor spaces can sometimes be the most neglected ones; they usually get considered long after the budget has run dry! But if you've got a charming (even small) outdoor space and a love of thrifting, you might find inspiration in this covered porch outfitted in stylish but affordable finds.

From the designer:

My clients, Cassie and Sol asked me to help them design their covered porch in the bungalow home in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood. They wanted to use mostly reclaimed or re-purposed materials. We used Goodwill, Craigslist, and garage sales for most of the decor. One of my favorite items is the pulley we re-purposed as a plant hanger!
